How To Make Your Own Udder Cleaner


Make Your Own Udder Cleaner
Making your own solution to clean teats before milking is not rocket science, it's really easy. Your Goat deserves the best.

Before Milking
As a boy, I would complete my milking chores and carry the bucket of milk into the house for my mom to strain. Straining was really necessary because the pale of milk always had a significant number of "floaters". I probably did not do as much udder or teat cleaning as I should have.
 Basic Teat/Udder Cleaning Rules
1. Take your time.
2. Use a "wet" cleaner initially.
3. Take your time.
4. Finish with a "dry" wipe.

Making Your Own Solution

A. Start with 3 cups water.
B. Add one squirt (1 Tbs) dish washing liquid, I like Dawn.
C. Add one squirt (1 Tbs) Baby Oil

Ready To Spray and Clean
Pour the cleaning solution you just made into a spray bottle and your ready to clean. I always keep my spray bottle inside the house so it is room temperature when I go out to milk. Spray the udder and teats and wipe down with a clean dry paper towel.

Clean Milk
After cleaning the udder and teats, finish the job with a Henry Milker for the cleanest milk ever!

  3. It is nice to share such a practical idea, as it helps in the milkink process. I will repeat it after the milking as to repel fleas and flies and may add any medication to keep the udder healthy and protected.
